Before you hit the trails it is imperative that you have the right gear. Being poorly equipped for outdoor adventure has led to injury and death.
Your camping and hiking gear should be both strong and lightweight as this will allow you to propel yourself further and can mean the difference between a sore back and feet and having the energy to hike all day. Your gear should also be waterproof to be effective.
When you go to buy hiking boots ensure they are lightweight, waterproof, cushioned, air filtered and have reinforced toes.
Jackets come in a range of materials to suit different weather conditions from lightweight rain protection to arctic conditions.
